We’ve been riding the whirlwind the past few days! But the next few weeks DH and J#1 are off school and we’ll be doing some traveling and things will just be a tad bit quieter….I hope.
Friday, My Dad and Stepmom arrived for a quick visit. But we hope to have them for a longer one next fall – assuming their 5th Wheel will fit in our driveway – and I think it will. They are full-time RVers – they travel all year long…no home but the one they pull behind them. They love it. It’t a bit hard to only see them twice a year – but that’s pretty much all I’ve had of my Dad since I was 5 – I just wish my kids had the opportunities to know them like they have with their other grandparents. But, I really just need to count our blessings and remember we have great Grandparents all around and my kids are blessed!
Then Friday evening the boys and I were going to drive up with my Dad and Stepmom to my sisters (where they’ve been staying for the week) and have a visit. DH was to meet us Saturday afternoon as my sister’s house after a meeting. But Friday night he decided to cancel out and caravan with us up the hill!
Saturday we lazed about in the morning – and Kevin, my BIL, gave us the tour of his yard (he has the coolest yard). When my Dad’s brother and his wife arrived, six of us adults got into our van and went off wine tasting. I think we hit 3 wineries – it was a beautiful day to be out so there were lots of people up there. We tasted lots of wine – come to find out I only like sweet wines – Reislings (Rieslings ?) and Muscats – dessert wines I guess you’d call them.
Well, I need to do some work around the house this afternoon – maybe even finish J1’s socks!
